WWTV/WWUP-TV’s Michelle Dunaway

WWTV/WWUP-TV (9&10 News/Cadillac),  McDonald’s, Highpoint and Nature & Me R.V. will join forces for the “Red Walk for Family” on September 28.

The event is to bring awareness to Northern Michigan communities about the important role the Ronald McDonald House of Western Michigan (RMHWM) plays in providing comfortable accommodations and so much more to our area.

RMHWM is a “Home Away From Home” for families of children traveling to Grand Rapids for their child’s medical or mental health treatment. It has provided service to more than 1,000 Northern Michigan and Upper Peninsula families. The majority of these families came from Wexford and Grand Traverse counties

The Red Walk for Families will take place on September 28 and is an athletic challenge that 9&10 News Health Reporter Michelle Dunaway will take on. This 40+ mile journey kicks off at 6 a.m. at the Traverse City McDonald’s and Michelle is expected to arrive at the Cadillac McDonald’s at 10:30 p.m.

Viewers are encouraged to get involved with this walk in different ways: by becoming a sponsor, donating and by rooting Michelle on as she takes over 84,000 steps for the RMHWM.
